WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of May 28. You never know if you need an alibi ! If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.
It was quiet a nice weekend. There was a big sailing boat festival in Ostend (Belgium) with around 150 boats anchored in the port just in front of the station.
The main attraction was the "Bounty" a replica built for the 1962 movie “Mutiny on the Bounty" with Marlon Brando, but also more recently for the "Pirates of the Caribbean" with Jonny Depp. As you could visit the boats, this one of course was fully packed with visitors who wanted to see where Mr. Depp had played the pirate. I was more interested in the ship than in Mr. Depp, whom I don't like especially. I walked around to see all ships, but I will write a special post about this event later.
Our son came again for the weekend (he had been with us last weekend too) but this time alone, because he had to go for the christening of one of his best friend's son, he is the Godfather, and another friend celebrated his 35 th birthday with a big party. So finally we didn't see him very much.
He brought me 4 bouquets of roses, which I squeezed in two vases (I didn't have enough) probably one for Motherday and one for last weekend and this weekend. He is a practical man and honored his mother in one shot ! I also appreciated very much that he mowed the lawn !
One of my neighbors was busy with repairing the little wall in front of his house and was using cement ! I went over and asked him if he could give me a bit to cement my new cat so that it is impossible to steal it ! He came over with his cement and now the cat sits in there and laughs at all eventual thieves ! Nah !
Before our son returned home, he fixed the "coffin" (as my front neighbor said) on his car's roof. Going on holidays next week with a baby needs a lot of space ! Of course Arthur the cat had to check if father and son did it right. Mother hang out of the window and took the pictures.
The afternoon I spent with Dominique in her garden, we made an update on the last happenings in our families and neighborhood. No kidnapping, no murders, no funerals nothing special happened. And my cemented cat spent her first night safeley besides the mailbox.
